**NEWLY RENOVATED KITCHEN 4/21/15.** (Mahalo for your cooperation in helping us to address the culprit causing the strange odor. We have completely removed the pantry, base cabinets, counter top and floor in response to guest concerns and replaced them. Please note that the last review submitted on 4/26 was based on a stay from 4/7-4/14 which prompted us to close the house for the kitchen renovation.)
We invite you to call our house your home while on vacation and become a part of the local community. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood our two bedroom-one bath cottage features a spacious living room and lanai area to enjoy family time. A full kitchen is equip with everything you need to prepare your favorite meal or snacks for a day on the go. The bedrooms have LCD TV's for a little down time and, privacy at the end of the day.

About the owner: I work for the University of Hawaii and my husband oversees the local newspaper production. We both commute frequently between Hilo and Honolulu and when we aren't working we enjoy body surfing, hula, hiking, roller derby, and getting together with family and friends. Our family consists of four grown children, a friendly rottie, a poi dog, a hungry goat, a lazy tortoise, and a talkative cockatiel.
Why the Owner Chose Hilo: We love our Leilani street plantation houses for their charm and proximity to all that Hilo has to offer.
